What Makes This Cold Brew Machine Special?

Right from the start, we noticed that a lot of care went into the design of this cold brew coffee maker. The glass and stainless-steel construction work well together to keep your coffee concentrate fresh. These materials are also amazingly easy to clean.

The carrying handle offers a comfortable grip for easy portability to and from your refrigerator. And finally, the tap dispenses amazing cold brew into your cup. This KitchenAid maker will sit nicely on a shelf, within your refrigerator, or a sturdy stand.

Additional features worth mentioning include:

  • – Generous Capacity. With 19 servings or 38 ounces of capacity, you will have cold brew for the whole week. It is also perfect if you have guests over as it will serve over a dozen people.
  • – Long-Lasting Concentrate. Your cold brew will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. We dispensed concentrate straight from the fridge and found that 2 ounces was plenty for 6 ounces of milk, water, or plain ice.
  • – Easy to Use. Simply grind your coffee, steep without heat, pour and enjoy!
  • – Reusable Steeper. The stainless-steel steeper is 100% reusable which means you can say goodbye to paper filters. It is also labeled with fill level indicators taking the guesswork out of the brewing process. From time to time, we did notice some grounds within our coffee because of the fine holes in the filter.
